More tax consultation to come: Ferguson

Miners will have more chances to comment on the proposed mining tax in coming months, even though the government's tax implementation panel still aimed to report by the end of the year, federal resources minister Martin Ferguson said today.

Can I say to all the Resources Sector Players, "don't roll over" because of some "bully boy" tactics of a Government that cannot control its spending, and so needs another tax to try to make ends meet. What next - a Carbon Tax of course! This Government shows a deficit at the end of the year of $54 Billion. Not only that it spent the $21 Billion that was the surplus from the previous government. To my calculations that is $75 Billion that these so called financial wiz kids have spent. Watch out Mr Ferguson succession of WA is not out of the question!

Ferguson you moron, small miners have not got an office load of under-worked plodders waiting äround to sit and read your verbose 130 page report, like your department... He has no idea! Hope he writes better than he speaks! To cap that off, he then turns it back on the small miners; "the industry had urged the panel to complete the review by Xmas.." This government is a ruse, all this tax revenue has been built into forward estimates, a house of cards and his slimy mate Swan now refuses to release the MRRT papers???
